Lanka, a repository of endemic flowers
Flowers; they are with us throughout our life -
in joy and in grief. We choose them to express our feelings and
flowers have neither complained nor shown their joy over our
decisions. Be it on the Mal Asana of a temple or among the garbage,
flowers are beautiful to the human eye wherever they may be. A
bouquet of flowers would always heal the sick and a grieving heart.

Sri Lanka's cultural annals, scintillate with a
galaxy of exceptional and luminous personalities. Individually and
collectively, they have woven the warp and woof of the chequered
tapestry, that we describe as our distinct cultural tradition.
